Who says sushi and veganism don’t go together? The latest sushi/Japanese joint to join the ranks of being vegan-friendly is Sake Rok (at The Park Vegas, sakeroklv.com). Executive chef Joe Mosconi and executive sushi chef Sung Park recently debuted a vegan menu featuring Avocado Toast Crispy Rice (crispy sushi rice with avocado, yuzu and micro shiso); Mushroom Tobanyaki (a variety of mushrooms topped with thick and creamy coconut milk); as well as grilled cauliflower with bok choy and crispy tofu in a miso vinaigrette. Other items on the new menu include vegan sushi, pickled veggies and a grilled tofu steak with grilled asparagus and roasted tomatoes.
